We tried Flying Piggy's using a Groupon on a Monday evening. The restaurant was empty when we arrived, but that's unlikely an indicator of its success; Monday evenings in August are destined to be slow at most restaurants. Unfortunately, our evening started on a negative note. A large and smelly commercial garbage bin sat in the parking lot beside our... More

Flying Piggy's has been a favourite restaurant for years and our last visit was no exception. The atmosphere is quiet and subdued - a little dark. Wooden chairs and tables with small gas lamps and a big mural in one corner. There's a separate room for special occasions. Daily specials are available and the menu is small but complete. Pasta...

I would probably not have tried it if it was not close to the airport hotel I was staying in. You don't expect such great food in such a bland suburban setting. We arrived near closing time (which is 9 pm, not exactly very late) and were their last guests that evening - with on one else in the dining... More

I've been here twice and the food has been absolutely excellent both times. The pasta dishes here are definitely a step above what you usually get at restaurants--you can tell it's handmade and just bursts with flavour. Flighty boar was delicious--I highly recommend it! Service was also great and the food came out surprisingly fast considering it's made from scratch--we... More

Visited in early June. Have been there often, but on this visit things went downhill. They mixed up the order... Gave the wrong meat.... Then switched it to the right meat, but the wrong sauce.... Yes... They just switched it...plunked the meat on the opposite plate. Ended up taking 3 hours for the full service.... They gave us the 1... More

The food quality was very good - bistro style, but quality of ingredients and presentation were well done.

Had dinner here a couple weeks ago and it was awesome! you would drive by this place and not notice it at all if you are not looking. Parking is limited, and so is seating capacity, but it is so well worth it. Fresh Italian cuisine that you would not expect to get in Ottawa. Seating was tight and thats... More

Like going to the Flying Piggy, lots of gluten free choices...pastas, soups, main dishes etc. Fresh and homemade. Great service. Quaint and cozy! Try this place, you won't regret it!

I was staying near the airport for business and my hotel staff recommended the Flying Piggys. I was very skeptical but took their advice and I am glad they did! I just returned from Rome and was craving Italian food (the proper Italian food, not Canadian Italian you find everywhere). This IS authentic Italian food, at least the dish that... More
